Some 150 Councils including right-wing Labour ones such as Brighton and Hove have introduced the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism which is a direct threat to freedom of

been suspended by his own union, the right-wing GMB, because he initiated a
petition calling the Israeli state a racist endeavour.

was led by Iain McNicol and Maggi Cosins, the hanging judge who chaired Labour’s
National Constitutional Committee. People like Mark Wadsworth, Cyril Chilson and Tony Greenstein
